Recent areas of activity include advising several international banks and payment service providers on the implications of the new Payment Services Act 2019 (PSA). Elaine Chan, who acts for banks, fund managers, insurers, commodity traders, broker dealers and clearing houses in regulatory and transactional mandates, and Joy Tan, who focuses on corporate governance and financial services regulatory matters under the Companies Act, Securities and Futures Act and other regulatory statutes, jointly lead the FSR group. Another key contact is Rosabel Ng, who has in-depth knowledge of the Singapore regulatory framework for the regulation of financial markets. The firm also houses a multi-disciplinary team focused on the fintech sector, whose members collaborate on transactional and regulatory matters cutting across issues such as blockchain, tokenisations and cryptocurrencies, venture capital fundraisings and emerging digital technologies.
